UNIQUE EXHIBIT FEATURES ANTIQUE PRINTS IN OUR SAN FRANCISCO SHOWROOM

December 20th, 2007
Our showroom in the Presidio Heights section of San Francisco is currently exhibiting a unique collection of antique and vintage prints dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries. The private collection, amassed over 20 years, is comprised of original antique works on paper, parchment and vellum, and consists of engravings, etchings, lithographs, gravures and mezzotints of botanicals, landscapes, architectural, art nouveau, and arts and crafts styles as well as portraits. Some examples of these unqiue works are shown at right.

The owner of this collection, Mark Zinky is an architect and avid collector. “I started collecting about 25 years ago, after realizing that the engravers and artists who created these works were able to achieve a line quality and richness of detail and composition far superior to anything available today,” says Zinky. “While we today can draw and detail on paper, there really is nothing which can compare to the quality and beauty of many of these older works.”

This collection will be on display in our San Francisco showroom through the month of Feburary, 2008.
